from 11:30 to 4:30. then we have a nighttime haunt that has no scare actors in it, we call it fright night light. that's tonight and next thursday. and that usually runs from 7:00 to 8:30. then we have our full on scare, which will start tomorrow night, our big opening night. mike: sounds great, have a great season. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. mike: the sun has just gone down, it's starting to get spooky, i hear thunder in the background, but there are no storm clouds out there tonight. who is in, it chris. what about the chill for the weekend. >> i hope there around any thunder clouds, otherwise i have to do the forecast over again. so mike had the the levels of fear, how about 24 degrees of fear, that's coming in your seven-day forecast. especially if you have to pay for heating. temperatures in the 50's and 60's, okay. it was near 80 on monday, it was 70 on tuesday, it was in the mid 60's yesterday. it was around 60 today or upper 50's, and you're going to be hoping for temperatures like
this, if you like milder weather as we come to the weekend. win coming in out of the south now, but that win is going to shift tomorrow and there's going to be a big shift in the weather as we work into the weekend. a few clouds straddling across the northern most sections of new hampshire in coos county, most of the showers associated with these clouds are staying in canada. however, off to the north and west we do have another strip of clouds and showers, these are the once that will be moving through overnight tonight, but mainly during the morning hours tomorrow. after that rolls on through though, there's still a lot of left over showers thanks to cold air. water spouts across the great lakes. we won't see that here, but because of the very cold air moving in over the milder water. how cold is this air? it's in the 20's today. in parts of central areas of ontario and northern quebec. starting with tonight, we're mild, at least for mid-october standards, in the 40's. rain showers primarily north and
west. over. clouds mostly moving in by dawn. let's break it down for you, our temperatures as mild as 47 along the seacoast. most of us in the 40's and again most of the showers across vermont, although some will sneak across the border into our own northern and western areas of new hampshire by the wee hours of the morning. for the day tomorrow, rain up north in the morning will taper off to just leftover showers in the afternoon. there will be some sun south. highs a little deceiving because we'll get into the upper 40's to near 50 north and the rest of us in the 50's and lower 60's. you're saying that's the same as today, right? not really because that's going to happen in the morning, then temperatures fall through the 50's during the afternoon with a blustery west northwesterly breeze. and they keep falling. we drop into the 30's by friday night as those showers work away. but on saturday, rain and snow in the north country and the white mountains, accumulation not so much. i think we might get a coating
terrain, but our highs only in the 40's and 50's and it keeps dropping from there. if the kill frost doesn't end the growing season for you on sunday morning, it certainly will by monday morning because we'll only be in the low to mid 20's and highs even with sunshine on sunday, only in the 40's south, 30's north. we do recover, so that by the middle of next week we'll be back into the 60's to near 70. so just enjoy a little preview of winter. jean: a little taste, all right, thanks, chris. jamie: u.n.h. hockey team ready for a showdown against the top 20 team tomorrow night, it is a good test. we need to disrupt the old order in washington, dc.

clean clarkson saturday night. so it's a good test for our team and it's early in the season. jamie: there are several reasons why division one high school football teams should fear the grizzlies this season. two of them are how old town heros. >> you're fortunate when you have your two best players are also your two best citizens, it's a great thing for us in goffstown. report that's justin huff talking about casey and connor. they couldn't be more different in stature. casey is six four, 230 pounds. connor just five five, 160. but they both play like giants, on the field. goffstown improved to 6 had-0 with saturday's win over previously unbeaten bed information. >> it was awesome. we have like 4,000 people at our game. i think we got lucky to be honest, we didn't play to our best potential and we have to work harder. reporter: the two captains
touchdown this is season, a season that now has the grizzlies tagged as the top team in the state. >> we just got positive last year, so it's a different feeling, but it's fun. >> it's a lot of fun definitely, just feels good to know that all the work we put in during the off season and the weight room, pays off. reporter: connor won a lacrosse championship and is a defending division two wrestling champ. casey plays basketball and vel ball but has never won a title of any kind at goffstown. for both a football championship would mean the world, but they're not there yet. >> we have to work on stuff first. >> there are two football games collecting food this weekend on friday night londonderry at spaulding, free admission to that game at spaulding if you bring a canned good on saturday. homecoming for newport as they play stevens, also a collection site.
